I'm Having a Hard Time Wrapping My Head Around This

This is is Jeremy Walker, a New Zealand fisherman who hauled in this 671-pound bluefin tuna earlier this week. The fish would have brought in an estimated $80,000 at market, had Mr. Walker and his chums decided to sell it. Instead, they ate it.

The angler—who does not appear to be in the final stages of starvation—caught the giant as it was feeding near a hoki boat off of New Zealand's South Island. It took him just two hours to reel it in. It will take me a lot longer than that to figure out just exactly what this Kiwi's problem is, because I'm totally flummoxed. I really am. I like a good tuna steak as much as the next guy, but do you know what I'd like even more? A Porsche.

Eighty large, dude! C'mon! It's a tuna steak, not even a real steak. It's fish. I don't get it. I'm just going to sit here and shake my head in dismay for a while. Don't mind me.
